Song of the Day: Eric Peters

By

Eric Peters has been one of my favorite songwriters since I first discovered his Scarce album a few years ago. This is “Long Road to Nowhere ” and it’s just one great song off an entire album of great songs. Right now (possibly at this very moment) he’s hard at work recording his next album with the ubiquitous Ben Shive. Check out the blog for the new record and stop by his website where you can get involved with the making of it.

 

Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he’s the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.

    Thank you, Pete.
    Here are the lyrics for those interested in reading along.

    Long Road (To Nowhere)

    there’s a feeling that I get you’re not done with me yet
    I go to bed at night feeling lost
    it’s dangerous, I know, I could go out on my own
    run away and never come back

    faith feels more like murder
    these little deaths keep hurting

    it’s a long road to nowhere
    there’s a good chance I’ll get there
    but as long as you’re beside me
    home is where I’ll be

    there’s a place inside of me where I’ve never quite believed
    that change was something good and always welcome
    here it is I’m torn, I’m an ancient being born
    and a hole inside my heart that’s always bare

    faith feels just like murder
    these little deaths keep hurting

    it’s a long road to nowhere
    there’s a good chance I’ll get there
    but as long as you’re beside me
    home is where I’ll be

    what about tomorrow?
    here and gone like yesterday
    I am no one real to fake it
    in daily dying, I am scarce and afraid
